Hello YouTubers!

Today I'm showing you guys how to get Serana to follow you incase she's 'bugging out'. As Serana is one of the most complex companions in Skyrim, there's a big chance that she might 'bug out', and I've seen many people on the internet looking for a solution that works on both PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. While I've only tested this on the Xbox 360, it should work on PC and PS3 as well, as the coding, forcing her to spawn and follow you, is the same no matter what system you're playing Skyrim on.
This method should also be able to fix the dialogue if you can't dismiss her, though I haven't tried it myself.

Here are the steps:
1. Travel to Castle Volkihar.
2. Go left until you reach the door to Castle Volkihar Undercroft.
2.5 !!!NOTE!!! If the skeletons don't spawn outside, this most likely won't work! Wait 10 days and they should spawn and it should work (thanks to natetheguitarkid for letting me know).
3. Enter the door and wait. If she doesn't spawn immidiately, try waiting 24 hours at the door.
4. Serana spawns in, following you. You can now access all the dialogue with her.

I hope you find it useful - if you do be sure to drop a like. Also for more be sure to subscribe and if you have any questions drop 'em below in the comment section :).

    It's bullshit that Bethesda didn't patch this glitch in the special edition. Hell I don't think they fixed the majority of annoying glitches. I think they're too busy trying to get people to buy Skyrim again and again.

  • Tyler Joe

    Thank you so much it worked 😂

  • Matthew Butcher

    Your a beast, thank you!

  • Black Ice

    Does this work every time?

  • Endymion766

    Serena disappeared on me in Soul Cairn. Will this same fix work?

  • Zak Martin

    I lost her when I got out of the cave

  • dIlUt3dFaItH tyndall

    Hey jitter in mine she will become my companion but she stays at fort dawngaurd but when I go there she won't follow me but she has the equipment that I gave her on and I have the option to trade with her but she just won't follow me

  • MrAperkins9

  • Potatosandwich1 Pokemon

  • Croatian Idiot

  • Ben Goode

    Serena has completely disappeared. Any idea on where to look for her? I unfortunately can't go back on an older save. They some how got lost. So my last save is close to when I started skyrim :(

  • Leah Carter

    I thought it was pronounced serANa

  • Yasmina Elrayes

    Thank you so much! i waited 48 hours inside the castle and it didnt work so as soon as i exited i see serana! I'd lost all hope omg :D you just earned a sub from me x

  • LeDectur

    Its funny how I had a completely opposite problem with her.

  • AnyOneGotThe Bleach?

    that's not the problem I'm having at the moment, I don't have the option to get her to turn me back into a vampire, I'm sided with the dawn guard so I'd if that has anything to do with it.

  • Rick Riot

    does this work for playstation 4?

  • Colaallegator gator

    thank you been having this problem

  • Adam Lavota

    When I told her to leave I got so sad cause I could not tell her to come back after doing this I'm so happy she's back. Thanks!!

  • Not You

    I need a key to the underkroft

  • Brayan Gonzalez

  • christian hobbs

    Dude thank you so much <3

  • Joshua Wright

    I hope this works for me im on the touching sky quest and she just disappeared she's some where around though I was fighting a enemy and her ice blast attacked them

  • Grimmy Reapes

    Where you first find Serena. I had journeyed to the castle and as I arrived she was nowhere to be found I tried looking at castle dawnguard and waiting at whiterun for long ass periods and I tried going around the castle and the door was locked I'm so irritated I just want to finish the DLC

  • andrea W1234

    IT WORKED! I could hug you right now. Thanks a million, dude.

  • actionfigure awesomereveiws

    I can't get this to work. I'm on PS4. If anyone could help I'd be very grateful

  • Jeremy Stone

    it worked for ps4 too

  • Mr. Towel

    WoW first Thing that actually works!!Thanks dude!

  • christian guillen

    I clicked to wear she turned human and now she is but nothing pops up when I want to talk to her can anyone help ?

  • The.Inferno

    so I tried it out and after waiting 24 hours in the game nothing happened , I tried waiting again and still nothing . I start to worry and think maybe this didnt apply to Xbox one ( my console ) so I leave and as i exit the castle i figure i might as well try to go in once more . and low and behold there she is with all the Armour and weapons I gave her . thanks for the help !

  • sampan chung

    Is dragonbone heavy armor? If so how did you you give her heavy armor at player lvl90. I'm only 35 and daedric armor is not equipping on her.

  • Tyler Joe

    Just subscribe aswell

  • The_UnwantedReaper

    Didn't work for me some advice if you can't make her wait because she's already waiting and dismiss her she can never come back because she'll already be at the castle. I found no fix.

  • Zane Trusdale

    I dismissed her and I can't find her anywhere. And another bug I can't do make the vampire drain spell stronger because i cannot talk to the guy who gives me the daily quest or what ever type of quest it is

  • experiencekillrGAMING

    I got the glitch on Xbox one but mine is even more of a prick when I do your steps as soon as I load in to volkiihar undercroft serana is fighting the enemies after a bunch of tries I got her out she would usually just disappear as soon as I left undercroft and if I tell her to wait or dismiss her her dialogue is gone again so yeah she's a piece of work

  • ElChapo :v

    THANK YOU 999999999999999 TIMES

  • Sandra Lindholm

    GOSH THANK YOU i had to leave her behind while assassinating a certain bride(otherwise she would ruin everything), but then i couldnt get her to follow. This solved all of my awful, awful first world problems. (It works on Xbox One, too!)

  • Angel Arriaga

    how do I get rid of serena

  • TheEpicAllMighty

    It didn't work... I want Serena back!!!

  • BuzzingLocket 3

    even when the battle music is sped up, it still sounds epic.

  • ExoticGamer

    on mines serana stays at broken oar grotto, like she follows me but she dosent go outside

  • reverse zoom

    There is something else wrong now serana won't follow me because when I told her to wait right here now I can't get her to follow me I don't have the word. do u know how to fix that as well?

  • BlameableDig7

    Can't seem to get it to work for Xbox one. Any suggestions?

  • Razil DaKat

    The secret door at that castle for me won't allow me in- I defeated the skeletons and searched all around but it's telling me I need a key to get in- anyone can offer a little help? ( I couldn't figure it out so I've been ignoring that mark /place upon the game).
